Plague of giant slugs

Posted: 03/09/2015 at 10:02

They are not allowed back out haha  phew!

Well they don't seem to have decimated the garden as yet... Interestingly they do seem to make a beeline for the hedgehog food each night.

Love that your puppy drank the Newky brown!

Hideous beasts the lot of them. Mine look suspiciously like the Spanish variety. And I saw one on my kniphofia too! That's it, I'm getting rid!

Ugh yuk. Don't they eat plants then?? I imagined them happily chomping their way through entire trees. I saw 3 of them curled up together, must have been some repulsive slug orgy thing. So you reckon I should leave them be?

Last few evenings I have seen lots of enormous orange slugs slithering along the sleepers, lawn and paths. I can only imagine they have recently hatched out. I have collected about 20 each night but no doubt there are many many more. I don't think our hedgehogs will want to eat them, in fact I'm slightly concerned they might have eaten the hedgehogs!
